Salen

This is a busy little village, with shops, post office, restaurant, coffee shop and launderette.

The mailboat service from Oban to Mull traditionally called at Salen pier en route to Tobermory and many people still have fond memories of the Lochinvar. From 1964 the new ferries required bigger piers and Craignure was established as the main ferry terminus on the island due to its central location for visitors to Tobermory and Iona. This meant the end for Salen as a mailboat destination.

St Columba visited Salen and preached from a rocky bluff behind the Salen Hotel, it is said that his services were ‘not very well attended’.
